If your job prints quickly, it becomes confusing as to whether it actually printed or just disappeared into the ether.

The complaint here is essentially "CUPS is not LPRng". If you disagree, re-open the ticket, but we need a better solution than "Convince CUPS to emulate LPRng"

Fine, CUPS is not LPRng. So file an upstream ticket to make it LPRng. I'm not convinced that adding yet another patch to either our frankencups servers or our wrappers to support this feature is a good idea, but *shrug*.
